To all wonderful mom readers here at Woman Scribbles, happy mother’s day! It feels different saying it from a mother’s perspective. Just last year, I gave birth to my first baby.I was aware of all the changes that were about to take place in my physical world. And I was actually right; I had more tasks but more laughter.I had sleepless nights but I get paid off with baby cuddles in the day. I had messy house, unmade bed and lots of missed dental appointments but I have never had intense joy just by seeing little smiles back at me and feeling little hands on my cheek. And now that little bundle is now a year old! I have to admit I get weepy just thinking about how much she has grown.
Being a mother has changed me so much. I learned how it is to consider the comfort of others more than mine. I realized that this is the time when you significantly use the word “I” less because you start to use “her” and “she” more often.
This is also a time when I begin to make myself meet my own needs, go after what I want and do the things that give me fulfillment.I know it sounds contradicting from the ones I said earlier but I find that I am more able to take the role of motherhood if all my needs are met.We all should somehow nourish ourselves to become more loving and fulfilled.
I guess the most important thing that I have learned is that as my baby grows, I grow too. Motherhood is a continuous learning and while it is never easy, it is always more than fulfilling. That is a guarantee.
Happy Mother’s Day! I hope you are having a great time as much as I am.
